Hi everyone, and welcome to another edition of Boring JavaScript! In this video, I tackle a subject I’ve wanted to talk about for over a year – the ‘this’ object. I spend a lot of time talking about Lexical Context, which is important in understanding why ‘this’ gets set the way it does.

For your viewing convenience, I have also broken out the video into chapters – I mean, it’s a long video, so it was necessary to do that.

Check it out, and let me know in the comments what you think.
